    Get the 8600gts.
    Essentially they are the same, but the 8600gts supports direct x 10 and has a newer core.

    With games right now they are equal because no direct x 10 games have come out yet. once direct x 10 games do come out then the 8600gts will be more compatible. As for benchmarks with the two, well you can wait about a week and I'm sure there will be many of them. tomshardware.com doesn't have any up yet, and they are usually the first ones to do so. The 8600gts pretty much just came out, so give it a little bit if you want to really compare the two.
